The dome cameras, which are highly resistant to corrosion and acid, are designed to be deployed in challenging industrial environments where chemicals are used, as well as for transport and off-shore applications.
Constructed of SUS316L standard stainless-steel, the new domes share a long list of innovative features built into other cameras in the award-winning open platform Wisenet X series, which when it was released in 2017, redefined the standard for high definition cameras. Supercharged by the most powerful DSP chipset ever incorporated into a full camera range, Wisenet cameras are equipped with the world’s best 150dB Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology and the world’s best motorised varifocal F0.94 low light lens.
Wisenet X cameras also feature H.265 compression and WiseStream II, a complementary compression technology which dynamically controls encoding, balancing quality and compression according to movement in the image. Bandwidth efficiency is improved by up to 99% compared to current H.264 technology when WiseStream II is combined with H.265 compression. This ensures that Hanwha Techwin’s new Wisenet X series is one of the most bandwidth friendly camera ranges available.
The four new models are:
• Wisenet XNP-6320HS 2MP 32x network PTZ dome camera
• Wisenet XNV-6120RS 2MP Vandal resistant IR dome camera
• Wisenet XNV-6080RS 2MP Vandal resistant IR dome camera with motorised varifocal lens
• Wisenet XNV-8080RS 5MP Vandal resistant IR dome camera
“We have developed these new stainless-steel products in order to meet the needs of end-user clients who operate in difficult operating conditions but wish to benefit from the innovative technology incorporated into the Wisenet series,” said Bob (H.Y.) Hwang Ph.D., Managing Director of Hanwha Techwin Europe. “System integrators who install these ultra robust camera domes can do so safe in the knowledge that they will be effective regardless of whether they are used for security, health & safety or production monitoring purposes.”
